Now that summer is winding down and most children are back to school, we’re getting lots of questions from concerned parents about Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).
In a 2007 study (the most recent data available), the CDC reported ADD affects nearly 10% of children, a shocking 22% increase since 2003. Self-reporting parent surveys indicate that this number continues to grow.
If your child has been diagnosed with ADD or ADHD, you probably have heard of the most common drugs to treat these conditions: Adderall and Ritalin. Over one third of the children taking these drugs experience some side effects, ranging from mild (constipation, dry mouth) to severe (brain hemorrhage).
If you have tried behavior modification therapies and still find that your child needs additional support, you may feel torn. Is it worth the risk of severe side effects to improve your child’s behavior?
There is another alternative. We have recently started stocking a product called Attend, manufactured by Vaxa (a Swedish company that has been in business since 1987). The reviews from parents are astonishing. Many report improvements in under a month. Don’t take our word for it, check out the dozens of rave reviews for Attend here (and here).
Drop into the Earth Zone to discuss your child’s condition so that we can work together to create a comprehensive healing program, including complementary supplements, such as Omega-3 and Zinc. We can also work with you to adjust your family’s diet to help improve the condition.
